Part of North Main St. in Brownsville was closed for a short time today after a two vehicle accident occurred in the 500 block, just south of the Brownsville bridge.
Brownsville Police Chief Jeff Jewell said that around 1pm on Friday, February 16, Michael Basham, (36) of Brownsville was headed south after crossing the Brownsville Bridge when his 2002 Chevy pickup veered off the right side of the roadway and hit a parked, unoccupied 2003 Chevy Cavalier, owned by Glenna Meredith (63), also of Brownsville.
Mr. Basham said he looked at his phone for a moment and didn't realize his vehicle had drifted over too far. He was reportedly uninjured and refused medical treatment at the scene.
In addition to the Brownsville PD and Edmonson EMS, the Brownsville Fire Department, Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, and the District 2 Constable assisted at the scene.
